Stucco and EIFS Exteriors

Stucco has been commonly used for centuries, but over the past two decades has gotten increasingly popular.  Stucco is a method of applying finishing plaster to the exterior of homes and other buildings, and its ease of installation, as well as its attractive appearance and energy-efficient qualities make it a great choice for many homeowners.

EIFS, or an exteriors insulation and finish system, is similar. EIFS is synthetic stucco, and is a method that’s been used since after World War II in Europe, when it was used to repair damaged brick, concrete, and stone structures. It is a durable material, and when applied over wood, drainage mats are also installed to eliminate problems associated with moisture damage.

Synthetic stucco is softer than traditional stucco, and sounds hollow when you tap it, compared to traditional stucco, which sounds solid and is hard and brittle.
